i think i can speak for many people in replying that while ftp might be ancient, so are we. i'll have to give dta a chance before i can complain further but, and i'm certainly no wizard, how is it more complicated to maintain ftp uploads and not downloads? also if i can't upload by ftp anymore, how am i supposed to do it? i honestly don't understand how you can simplify anything by providing one way ftp. that sounds more complicated to me.

It does simplify configuration and security management, but you have a point about maintaining it only one way.

We are in test of an HTTP uploader system that is really smooth that we would like to release to a wider group in a week or so.

So we hope that the http download, which is what most people do, will be at least not too painful a switch.

I have an automated upload system using the old FTP method. Anyone have any suggestions how to automate uploads with this new share button? My FTP solution uses PHP and a cron job, watching a folder for submissions, and meta info from the file name.
